Top Kenya Sports Betting Sites

Choosing a sports betting site from Kenya an be more difficult than you might think.  Each online bookmaker serves a unique selection of nations, supports a unique group of account currencies and offers their own distinct features & technology.  When trying to bet from Kenya, your top priority is to avoid wasting time at betting sites that will not accept your registration.  Popular UK-focused sites including SkyBet, Ladbrokes, BetFred, PaddyPower and BetFair among others simply do not serve customers in Kenya.

This is the most basic point of criteria in finding the best betting sites for Kenya, so all the sites listed on KenyaSportsBetting.net must accept customers from Kenya and offer banking methods that can be used from within Kenya, whether you are in Nairobi, Mombassa,Kisumu, Nakuru, Malindi, Eldoret or any other Kenyan city.

Beyond this, you want to ensure that you choose a betting service that is well-established and highly reputable.  Seven of our top 10 betting sites for Kenya are highly visible brands that operate within the UK, which is one of the most highly-regulated national markets for online sports betting in the world. The others are some of the oldest and most trusted gaming brands.

We also know you probably have several questions about each betting site - simply click on the review buttons to learn more.  Below, we also cover important topics with regard to online sports betting from Kenya so you can feel comfortable in getting started.  Simply scroll down or click the links along the top navigation.

Kenya Sports Betting Laws: Is it legal to bet on sports in Kenya?

Absolutely it is.  Several betting sites have even looked to open their brands directly in Kenya, with Kenyan gaming licenses and .co.ke domains.  Betway is the international brand above that has taken brand and made a version just for bettors in Kenya.  However in early 2018, the Kenyan government imposed a huge gaming tax of 35% on these operators.  Thankfully, later in 2018, the Kenyan government scaled the gaming tax back to just 15%.  Before the tax was introduced, these companies were able to afford local sporting sponsorships in Kenya, but these sponsorships stopped with the initial tax rate.  With the recent tax reduction, some of those sponsorships have been able to continue.


Banking with your Kenya sports betting site: Best payment methods

For most Kenyans that want to start betting on sports the easiest banking methods come through your mobile device with M-Pesa or Airtel.  Luckily, both Betway and 1XBet offer this to you and can essentially be considered as Airtel and M-Pesa betting sites for Kenya.  

However, if you want to open up your possible choices in order to experience better technology, better interfaces and better odds, you will have to open yourself up to using other banking methods.  All our other listed betting sites for Kenya allow you to make payments with credit or debit cards, or an e-wallet like Skrill, Neteller or EcoPayz, or prepaid solutions like AstroPay card.  Some like MarathonBet and Pinnacle even accept Bitcoin.

Odds are an important thing to think about for every bet that you place, not simply when selecting a betting site.  Here is the reality of sports betting. Every online bookmaker integrates their own odds margin rate into their odds.  This margin represents the revenue that a bookie will keep from all monies wagered upon a given event by all bettors.

The lowest available margins are usually around 2% to 3% for the most popular sports and the most popular betting markets.  MarathonBet, Pinnacle and 1XBet tend to offer margins this low.  Unibet and BetVictor can also get this low for football.  The rest of the sites have odds margins of 4% to 6% for the biggest sports and most popular betting markets.  

While low margins help you to determine which betting sites will consistently offer the most competitive odds, the reality is that the best odds for your particular bets of interest will not come from the same betting site all of the time.  So, if you enjoy combination bets (aka accumulators) or multiples betting (aka system bets), your odds get multiplied together, which means the differences in potential payouts between betting sites can become amplified.

Depending on your bets of choice, your odds from reputable betting sites can range from 10% to over 50%.  So if you are serious about maximizing your potential returns, it makes sense to open a few accounts and then use an odds comparison site like oddsjet.com before you place your bets so that you can instantly find out which betting site offers the best odds for your bets of interest, or find premium opportunities where the top provider is well above the median.  Even if a given site does not offer Kenyan Shilling accounts, these differences in potential payouts can make a difference in your potential returns.

Understanding KYC - Know Your Customer: It’s not just for Kenyan players & it’s easy

Every reputable betting site around the world is mandated by their regulators to establish anti-money-laundering practises.  KYC or Know Your Customer is the main process for this and it is for ALL customers, not just those from Kenya.  Before you will be able to withdraw funds from your betting account, your online sportsbook will ask you to upload scanned copies of government issued identification and another document, like a utility bill that proves your identity and that you live where you say you live.  Your KYC document info will need to match the information used to register your account.  This KYC account verification process often only takes about a week to complete with most companies, often even less time .  Don’t worry, you can start betting immediately upon your deposit.  Only withdrawals are contingent on KYC process completion.  Have a little patience regarding these mandatory protocols.  Everyone has to wait for their documents to be approved.


VIP sports betting from Kenya: Which betting sites have the highest limits?

The quick answer for you is that Pinnacle has the highest limits.  Pinnacle uses stake limits, and they are high.  You could bet over 30,000 Euros on a single football match with Pinnacle - no sweat.

Most other sites set their limits by the amount that can be won in a given day, in a given sport, by a single person and within certain betting markets.  If you want to bet on the main betting markets for top sports leagues like the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, the Champions League, NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL you can win as much as 2 million British Pounds per day with some of these betting sites, others top out around 1 million.  For details, you can find the limits within the betting rules or help sections of each site.

Are there any reputable betting sites that offer Kenyan Shilling betting accounts?       

Indeed there are.  Both of the betting sites that offer M-Pesa and Airtel for payment methods of course also offer accounts in the Kenyan Shilling so you may avoid currency conversion costs.  Airtel and M-Pesa betting sites allow Kenyan sports betting customers to make and receive payments very easily.  While M-Pesa or Airtel payments availability is surely an important point for many Kenyans, note that if you have other available payment methods at your disposal, like credit cards, debit cards or e-wallets, your choice is far greater, allowing you to play at some of the top international and UK online bookmakers.


Are there any sports betting bonuses available to bettors in Kenya?

Yes!  Both Betway and 1XBet offer bonuses in Ksh to new customers in Kenya.  Some of our other listed betting sites also offer promotions for new customers including bet365, 10Bet, Spin Sports, Unibet and BetVictor.  You will see these offers and their associated terms when you click to visit them.  We’d love to show you these offer terms and conditions here, but they can change often, so to ensure that you always have the best and most relevant information, we simply refer you to the actual betting site.
